September 5th, 2012 · No Comments

Our wonderful country is divided as not experienced since the War Between the States. So which side is correct? And what should your ballot choice be in the critical election of 2012? Do we want our lives controlled by politicians who want the government to make decisions that are the right and responsibility of the […]

Financial Crisis Makes Presidential Choice More Important

October 9th, 2008 · No Comments

Is if possible to efficiently type on one’s laptop while hiding under the bed to escape the meltdown of our economy?  And won’t the sinus infection from which I currently suffer be worsened by the dust that my political activities have allowed to amass under the same said bed? The current economic crisis isn’t really […]

Vice Presidential Choice – An Important Indicator of Judgement

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

A long anticipated event for political junkies was the first Vice Presidential debate of this historical campaign season.  As the starting time drew near, our household gathered around the television anxiously awaiting the moment with as much enthusiasm as a sports fan excited over the opening kick-off of the Super Bowl. It actually was the Super Bowl, the final winner being an individual who receives much more […]

Mr. Webster Wouldn’t Like the New Definition of Elitist

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Mr. Webster must certainly be making a valiant attempt to escape from the grave to update his dictionary to meet new 21st century definitions.  The current wordspeak, seemingly straight out of George Orwell’s “1984”, has taken many words and twisted them into an intent that was never conceived by previous generations. The most battered of all those terms appears to be the […]

The Right to Keep & Bear Arms

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Thanksgiving is a terrible time to spend at our Neshoba County, Mississippi farm. The culprit that denies an escape from our hectic life is the beginning of deer season. The 78 acres that is an integral part of my heart and soul have not been farmed since my precious grandfather’s 1962 death. And the house […]

Lesson’s Learned from the Election of 2006

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Newspaper reports concerning the root cause of the election of Virginia’s new Senator appear to be a simplistic explanation of what was a much more complex choice. I am the moderate voter who delivered the Senate into the hands of a different party. My vote was in no way a validation of one particular issue. […]

Do You Know What it Means to Miss New Orleans?

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

It has been a long time. The sights and sounds of New Orleans had been relegated to the back room of a full middle aged mind. It took a heart wrenching performance by Aaron Neville to bring the memories rushing back. Louisiana 1927, lyrics by Randy Newman, foretold the Hurricane Katrina aftermath with its poignant […]

New Orleans – A City Abandonded by the Federal Government

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

If this were a disaster in a third world country we would immediately begin to see cargo planes from the United States arriving with food, water, and medical supplies. Where are the C-5A’s that should be arriving in New Orleans? The pictures and sounds are heart wrenching. People are dying of dehydration. Families haven’t eaten […]

The Reverse Robin Hood Effect

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Whatever would the Founding Fathers think of America’s recent loss of property rights? Has the 21st Century interpretation of their vision relegated cherished freedoms to the abyss of time? The Supreme Court’s recent decision allowing government the power to take personal property from one and give to another is a gross constitutional violation. Article V […]

Not a Pretty Bubble

October 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Profiting from a real estate bubble seems quite unimportant to those individuals who plan to spend their retirement years in a house they worked for decades to purchase. The growing appreciation of their home is, instead, a frightening liability for seniors living on a fixed income. Each year brings a double digit assessment increase for […]
